Compazine and Other Nausea Meds



Recommended Posts

Hola! The majority of everyone knows I am tackling a marginal ulcer. It was pretty much healed up, but they I mysteriously started getting severe nausea last Tuesday - present. I've had a bit of nausea since surgery.... but now it is SO much worse. Gets way worse by 3 or 4pm through bedtime. I've been on Zofran, Phenergan, and Reglan, all of which didn't help (the Reglan may have, but it made me fall asleep instantly, lol). I also take some aloe juice because why not, I guess. The emergency room gave me a script for Compazine. I took some last night along with a 40mg Pepcid and it worked. FINALLY. Compazine is for severe nausea AND an antipsychotic. Has anyone taken this long-term? I am already on an SSRI and Compazine affects dopamine, so I don't think it'll interact. I am just happy something helped, really. The dry-heaving has re-irritated the ulcer, which was *almost* healed. I gotta be on something to stop this.

They thought the nausea was since I (now) haven't gone #2 in 13 days, but a CT Scan revealed I had NO stool in me at all. No leaks or anything, either! Nothing going on in any of my organs, including the pouch. Labs all perfecto. I'm thinking it's just bad stomach acid in the evenings. No one has an answer... saw the ER doc and they consulted the bariatric surgeons on-call. Full of mysteries!

Is there a question in all of this? I dunno. LOL.

I'm just gunna keep on keeping on. The Compazine and Pepcid helped so much last night, but I am a bit sleepy today. I just dared to eat some dense food (chicken breast) with no ill effect other than maybe a bit too much. I'm trying to stay good 95% of the time and stick to puree. The chicken was very tender and smothered in parmesan cream sauce so... I'm counting this as a soft food. 😛 Ulcer be gone! Mama want some hot sauce....

And I am at my community hospital, couldn't pull any blood out for blood draws, so I am being. declotted. Either it or the mashed potatoes with gravy , their idea, the thought food might help, it didn't and I've been puking, been here 3 hours and beginning to think they're off in the basement playing pool. Dear Heavens, what next? Have appointment with Dr Needleman tomorrow at 8:30 AM, beginning to think I'll never make it home today to start my TPN. It has to warm 3 hours before infused , screw life, I'm not comfortable, I'm not happy. They have a double syringe hanging from my arm, come -check -and leave!

I know blood draw woes all too well. It's a minimum of 7 sticks for me before they even find a vein. I am always told my veins are "in the wrong place" and too skinny and deep. It's a nightmare. I've made many a phlebotomist cry. Like actually cry. One had to grab the doctor and they used a syringe to suck out the blood. Nightmarish. Every time! Delayed my surgery by an hour because they couldn't start an IV and at the ER on Friday night the IV kept coming out and the CT contrast leaked down my arm.

Had a male nurse tell me for a big girl I had such tiny veins. Is that like the boy forced to dance with his cousin who told her " For a fat girl, you don't sweat much!" Well maybe I will lose enough weight that I will match my veins with my body. My arms look someone to a cudgel and beat me. Told him why don't you use my right antecubital? He says someone else might want it, shoot t8m8ng is everything, let them root around , I'm getting tired of YOU!
